Chevrolet Silverado Special Ops concept headed to production

Part of the proceeds from each limited-edition truck will be donated to the Navy SEAL Museum in Florida.

Chevrolet has announced the close-to-production Silverado Special Ops concept that was shown at this year's edition of the SEMA show has been given the green light for production.

The Special Ops concept (pictured) stands out from the Silverado 1500 Z71 on which it's based thanks to a three-tone camo paint job called Razzle Dazzle, a body-colored grille with six-inch LED light strips, and a bed-mounted sports bar fitted with LED lights. Five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels tucked under flared fenders emphasize the go-anywhere look.

The Navy-inspired treatment continues inside with a sprinkling of Ejector Orange accents, Razzle Dazzle trim on the dashboard, and waterproof seat covers. The Silverado Special Ops was well received in Las Vegas, but the Bowtie hasn't revealed whether the concept will be toned-down in its transition from a show car to a production model.

Similarly, what will power the truck is anyone's guess at this point.

Production of the Silverado Special Ops will be limited, though Chevrolet hasn't disclosed how many examples it plans on building. The truck is scheduled to land in showrooms next spring as a 2016 model, and enthusiast website GM Authority reports that part of the proceeds from each limited-edition truck will be donated to the Navy SEAL Museum in Florida.
